4.2.1: There is obviously something not right in the average thrown damage Info display: throwing Narthanc (CL7 Dunadan Blackguard) almost always does 180 damage, yet Info says 43.9 average (vs. not fire resistant). It's seems to be under-reporting by 4x compared to the actual damage it does.

This is the second report I've had of flakiness in throwing descriptions. Do you have a savefile?

There was a change between 4.2.1 and 4.2.2 to match the formula used for thrown damage in the information display to the one used for the damage calculations. That could be relevant here, though it wouldn't be for David Medley's report.

Yes, 4.2.2 shows throw damage info that matches the damage actually done when thrown. I was absolutely loving my Spear of Frost, until I threw it and then absentmindedly followed up with a fireball.....doh!
